    So I finally replaced all the filters in my 5 stage RO/DI after running it for 2 years. I hope I don't have to do that again for at least another 2 years...what a pain trying to find all the little leaks and stopping them. After I got all the leaks stopped it only took about half a gallon before...

    I've been running my tank (FOWLR) bare bottom for a year now. I've been using a siphon hose to suck all the junk out of the corners when I do water changes, but I've noticed it's been really hard to get everything out of there and the sump is really hard to clean out too. I already had a...
